The Inspector General Of Police, Mohammed Alhassan has disclosed that about fourteen (14) persons have been arrested by the police in connection with fraudulent police recruitment exercise.

The IGP made this known when he appeared before the Parliamentary Defence and Interior Committee.

Hundreds of young men and women turned up at five police training depots last Saturday for enlistment into the Ghana Police Service left disappointed.

They found that their recruitment letters were fake and that the purported enlistment was a scam.

It took the police a hectic time to send away the victims, most of them university graduates, who had gone to the Kumasi, KoforiduaPwaluguAccra and Ho Police depots with their luggage to begin the training.

A 36-year-old shea-butter seller named Aisha Asumda has been identified by the Police as the main suspect behind the latest recruitment scam.

According to the IGP, “14 people have been arrested. Our hope is that some people have been arrested and they have not gotten away with what they did. A greater amount of money has been collected from the people: if you are SSS graduate you pay 5,000 and university graduates pay 7,000.
